Key points to remember:
Coordinates can be used to describe locations on a grid or map. There are 2 kinds of coordinate systems. The first is on a map, in which the coordinate refers to a square. The second is on a grid, in which the coordinate refers to a point.
Transformations – rotations (turn), reflections (flip), and translations (slide). For a translation you must also include the description of the movements, such as 4 squares up and 3 squares to the right. Please note that the figure/shape must remain the same size!
Congruent means same shape, same size.
A line of symmetry is a mirror object. It divides a figure into 2 congruent parts. A symmetrical figure has one of more lines of symmetry.
